Obituary For Shelby Hill Hyde

Shelby Jean Hill Hyde, age 86, of Sneads Ferry, NC went to be with her Lord and Savior on Tuesday, November 15, 2022. She was born on October 29, 1936 in Sneads Ferry to the late George Allen and Agnes Hansley Hill. Also, preceding Shelby in death was her beloved husband of 55 years, Audley Willard Hyde; a brother, Shepard Hill and sister, Georgia Martin. Surviving Shelby are two sons, Jeffrey S.

Shelby was the most beautiful person inside and out. Living her life for Christ, her husband, children and grandchildren was what Shelby loved the most. Shelby was a homemaker through and through, down to her love for gardening, reading, cooking, baking, sewing, quilting and making sure her family had a full course meal every day. We know that Mama is in the arms of Jesus which gives us the peace to heal. She will be missed, but will be in our hearts forever.

    Gloria, Jeff, Kim, Jason: I'm sorry to hear of Ms. Shelby's passing. I'll always remember her kindness, gentle smile, and soft spoken voice. She was such a pleasant presence when I came over to play as a kid; I remember those best tasting pop-sickles too. With love and prayers to you all - Susie Pierce

    What I remember most, Aunt Shelby always had homemade Popsicles in the freezer and picking blueberries in her back yard.
